We stayed 4 very happy nights here as a family with 2 teenagers. There are 3 sets of accommodation sharing a pool just off the main road. The house is an old traditional farmhouse which has been converted in a very modern way inside with all the modern conveniences you could ask for. However if you want old traditional this... More

Spacious house with of lot of small details like many interesting books on the Açores islands, a nice fruit bowl, tasty fresh local biscuits. Confortable bed. Owner took time to explain Pico and gave us useful tips and restaurant contacts. The kitchen storage is made for tall people as being small was a bit difficult for me,this a small detail.... More

The place is very nicely done. Wonderful architecture outside, very original décor and design inside. Excellent facilities, nice comfy beds, lovely bathrooms, superb kitchen, nice furniture, wonderful view, lovely swimming pool. Everything seemed to be very nice. The big, big negative point is its location. The place is directly located on the island's main road. From 7 to 9 in... More

The acomodation is ok but not the genuine house we were looking for. The house has a nice view. The village is a bit dull and with no access to the sea. No decent restaurants within walking distance. It is hard to get in touch with them by phone.

My husband and I so enjoyed our stay at Casa do Ouvidor. Lovely spot, terrific view, refreshing swimming pool, nicely decorated, and fully equipped kitchen with the things you need in the house with a comfortable bedroom, bed and bathroom ensuite. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and charming. But really life in Pico is truly the best.

We want guests to feel at home.The Earth, Sea and Fire trilogy has always constrained the life of the Azoreans and particularly that of the islanders from Pico. Earth because it resulted from the effort of the settlers and their descendants who cleared it, making their daily bread to arise from the rock. The Sea, the wide Atlantic Ocean, full of mystery, is always present, and it both unites and separates us.Fire, father of the islands that arose from inside the Earth, is the heartbeat of the planet and a test to the people’s perseverance and determination. Casa do Ouvidor honours this trilogy by naming its three accommodation units after these elements.In green areas, the garden provides separate living areas, where different groups can coexist with some privacy, without however compromising the exceptional landscape that observes the House and garden.
